Swine Flu Hype

The Swine flu is a major threat to many people. But honestly there are some myths about the swine flu, that can put your mind to rest. Is the Swine flu very serious?  The Swine flu isn’t as bad as the seasonal flu some reports say.  It should be taken as the same importance as any disease.  The next myth is whether it is okay to go to school or work after having the Swine flu.  The study shows that after the fever goes down to wait 24 hours before returning to public places.  The final major myth is to go to the ER if you get the Swine flu.  Some actually say to just treat the symptoms at home, and if get worse go to your doctor.  This is because being in the ER risks your chances of getting exposed to sicker people and you can actually spread the flu to other people there.  The Swine flu isn’t much different than the regular flu, there are many myths associated with the Swine flu.
